Bakelite Camera - Very Good (used & in working state with minor signs of use)

Brand: Purma
Model/ type nr: RARE 1937 PURMA 'Special' Boxed Bakelite Camera. Plus Instruction Booklet.
Object/device type: Bakelite Camera
Condition: Very Good (used & in working state with minor signs of use)
No. of main devices: 1
Lens Mount Type: Fixed.
Film type: 127

The Purma is unique in a number of ways. It has a focal plane shutter - all metal. The shutter is curved, to allow for lens distortion. The shutter has three speeds, all automatically chosen on a gravity-controlled system which changes when the camera is held in various positions. All this in 1937!
The one on offer comes in excellent condition and seems little-used, with a 'new-look' to the Bakelite finish. The original presentation box is included, along with an Instruction Booklet and papers.
Rare to see this complete and this condition for an over 80-years-of-age camera.
A collectors gem!

    Response by seller
    Hi, Please clarify the position over the battery hatch. I wasn't aware that anything was missing. Was it on the camera or the motor-drive?
    Regards Alan.
  • Over deze levering ben ik positief.
    Bij de Lubitel 166 ontbreekt nog steeds een knop. Die is uit Polen aangeleverd.Ik heb er om gevraagd maar hij komt niet.
    Ook bij Sipkes kunnen ze dieniet vinden

    user-08eddc8 July 8, 2019

    Response by seller
    Hi, I am pleased you found the Hasselblad Viewfinder good, but am puzzled by the mention of a Lubitel 166, as I am in the UK and not Poland?
